Bait Fish Schools under the Sound

The Salish Sea supports huge schools of bait fish also known as herring, that feed the salmon and other larger species. Diver and filmmaker, Laura James,went in down near Seattle, with a rebreather (which leaves no bubbles) and captured this beautiful dance of the bait fish, at night.

Laura will be part of a group of environmental activists highlighted in the film, “Sound and Vision” to be shown by the Jefferson County Marine Resource Committee and the Washington Environmental Coalition, in Port Townsend in January. Dates and location to be announced later.
